Make a Wish
I had my first physical therapy appointment today and it went very well. I can feel it in my knee a little bit, hopefully Tylenol will take care of that! Blogger was giving me grief all morning, so that's why I'm late posting. I finished this card late last night and simply could not stay awake to post then! Enjoy the rest of your day.

Clearly Inspired Challenge
I had fun with this one! I used two individual stamps, Ladybug and Flower and the sentiment. A very simple layout, bright fun colors, and a sweet ladybug brad...that's what I call quick and easy! I hope you have time to check out the rest of the DT samples, because they sure are winners!!

An Oldie But a Goodie of a Blog Hop
Welcome! It's our once a month Design Divas Oldies but Goodies blog hop. The only rule is to create something using items that haven't been used in six months. That is never a problem for me!!!! Now you should have come from Angie's blog. If not, start at the beginning at Cindy's blog.
I took a break last week and missed all of you terribly. I feel like I am finally on the mend from my knee surgery and blood clot complication! So I am all smiles as I share the Sweet Sketch Wednesday with you. I love it! Does it look familiar? Well we are bringing back some fun and fabulous sketches of the past for your enjoyment. We will still have a prize, and our lovely sponsor is Digi Stamp Boutique.
I love Sally Ann's images! So sweet and whimsical! I did mention a prize, and it will be 6 free digis of your choice if you are the winner. So what are you waiting for, get creating!!!!!!
Let's Hear it for the Red, White and Blue!
You know what else you should try is our month long Beach/Summer theme challenge. It's a prize challenge!!!!
I sure hope you enjoy your day! I'll be working on laundry and hopefully some stamping. And not necessarily in that order!!!!!

A Clear Dollar Stamps Blog Hop!
Now my card I used the stamp set Bitty Bots. I heat embossed it on watercolor paper then used my Tombow markers on it. I also went with Basic Grey's Oliver dsp because I love those rich masculine colors.
I am the last stop of our hop, so thank you for joining us today. Check back on Wednesday to see if you are a winner!!!

Summer Fun Blog Hop at Fresh Brewed Designs
Waves rise and crash as the children run.
Girls in bikinis, a lemonade stand,
Wiggling our toes in the sand.
Summer is most fun; you'll see,
We get to play and be carefree.
Dreaming of mermaids and magical things,
We close our eyes as the ocean sings.
Sand, sun, ocean, fun;
Thank goodness Summer has just begun!
Aloha!!! Welcome to the Fresh Brewed Designs Blog Hop! I am your first stop on the hop, so I hope you are sitting there with your favorite flavor of coffee because you are going to like what you see!
We are getting a head start on SUMMER FUN here at Fresh Brewed Designs! This hop will be featuring the new summer themed Rubber Stamps just released to the shop. Heather has created 8 super sassy, sweet and fun beach themed rubber stamps that are a must for all of your summer crafting needs! But no, she did not stop there! She has created 5 adorable summer themed digis. Join us in welcoming Baby Ellie, Baby Elvis, Daisy and Scooter Elephant to the FBD family.
I know that all of these things bring the cuteness meter to the tippy top, but we are taking it one step further. Heather has added beautiful, shimmery, fun and AWESOME Creative Inspirations Paints to her shop!!! YES!!! These paints are amazing! You can find three colors in her shop: Tickled Pink (the perfect summer pink!) Aquamarine (Beautiful bright ocean blue) and Fairy Dust (a MUST HAVE because it goes with EVERYTHING!!!)
Along the hop you will see many of these items, so sit back and be prepared for all the complete cuteness that awaits you. Be sure and comment along the way on everybody's blog. Also, when you done hopping, get stamping, because this SUMMER FUN themed blog hop is also the prize challenge for the month of May at Freshly Brewed Challenges.
For this release, I created with the new digital stamp Daisy Sunbathing. Is she not a cutie??!! I had to keep on using my new Stella Rose paper pack by My Mind's Eye because it is simply fabulous. Okay, now I really am ready for summer!!! We vacation every summer at the beaches of the Outer Banks, North Carolina, and this summer is no exception!
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope that you are getting ready to break out your coconut bikini top, the self tanner and throw yourself a beach party! With the weather being as crazy as it has been, you deserve it ;)!!!
From here you will surf on over to Kelly 's blog.
Here is the hop order for you if you wipe-out along the way :)
